Ozerov Group 2014

Ozerov Group - March 2014

OUR RESEARCH:

The projects in our group typically involve transition metal or main group organometallic chemistry but are diverse and cover a wide variety of synthetic and mechanistic work. The ideal-case research scheme consists of:

1) discovery of a new reaction or a structural environment;

2) demonstration of unusual reactivity, structural, or electronic novelty;

3) application of these findings to develop a new catalytic process.

The training of students in our group is not built around a narrow research theme but instead aims to help students mature into problem-solving practicing synthetic chemists through exposure to diverse research experiences.

Specific areas of research:

  • Organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis
  • Molecular chemistry of transition metals and main group elements
  • Biomass conversion
  • Carbon-fluorine bond activation
  • Chemistry and energy
